In the real world, our ventral audio stream is dedicated to localizing sound to guide attention. On Zoom, however, this information is lost, likely leading to attention fatigue on long videoconferencing calls. Transforming 2D outputs from computer speakers into perceived 3d audio fields is possible, however! I remixed John Splithoff's "Show Me" into spatial audio, sometimes called 8D audio (best with headphones). It's relaxing for many people and might suggest an easy way to make videoconferencing better.
